Thank You Reception Honors Consecutive Giving


The Drexel Fund Office hosted its annual Donor Thank You Reception on Wednesday, April 30, 2008 at the Pyramid Club in the Mellon Bank Center, Philadelphia, PA. Consecutive giving was the focus of the evening as Dr. Elizabeth Dale, Senior Vice President of Institutional Advancement, addressed the guests honoring donors who have given for 25 years or more.

"Drexel's alumni understand the importance of giving back to their alma mater. They know that alumni gave before them to support this remarkable University," stated Dr. Dale. Donors had the opportunity to meet with current students of the Traditions Program, a student led initiative to implement past traditions as well as educate students about the University's history. Ms. Sylvia Purnell Muldrow, Director of the Drexel Fund, thanked guests for their continued support each year.
